I took this a handful of mornings ago when it was extra cold and frosty outside. This is the entrance to the Lone Oak Cemetery on 3rd Ave. I’ve taken photos of it before, but it’s nifty, so I did it again.
This is the back door to Stayton Elementary School. I took it earlier this month for a “doorway” City Daily Photo theme day post, but ended up going with another photo.
This door at the school gets far more traffic than the front, since it’s the door near where the kids get dropped off and picked up by buses and cars.
By the way, how interesting is it I have trouble spelling the word “elementary”? But I’m pretty sure everyone called it Stayton Grade School when I was there back in the early 80’s, so I blame “everyone” for my spelling failure. I have no trouble spelling “grade,” after all.
I took this photo for the City Daily Photo doorway theme day at the beginning of the month, but ended up using a different one instead. So I’m posting it now.
This is the stone stairway at the Holm Building on 2nd Ave. I posted a photo of the whole building back in 2006, but had never really paid attention to the stairway and door before. Kinda nifty.
Yesterday’s City Daily Photo theme day was “doorways.” I posted a non-traiditional doorway then, so I thought I’d post a normal doorway today.
This is the entrance to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, a catholic church on 6th Ave., which was built in 1951, according to the inscription on the front of the building.
Today is the November 1st City Daily Photo theme day, and “doorways” is the topic. My photo is something of an unconventional take on it. A drunk driver plowed through the Chase Bank on the corner of 1st Ave. and Locust St. a few days ago, and created an impromptu doorway of his own with his truck. The boarded up area is where the truck went through into the bank lobby. More of the building is boarded up inside. The actually door to the bank is on the left side of the photo.
For more of the story and photos taken just after the incident, check out the report on StaytonEvents.com.
Tomorrow I’ll post a proper doorway photo, just for the heck of it. Stay tuned.
A lot of other CDP bloggers are participating in today’s theme day. Check ‘em out below:
This building lives on the corner of 3rd Ave. and E. Florence St. This is a side view of… well, read the title. The building isn’t really this bright blue… I played with the saturation and kind of went overboard. But it’s definitely blue.
If I have my buildings straight, I posted a photo of the front of the building back in 2007. If I’m wrong, then I posted the front of some other building back in 2007.
See, there’s a sidewalk and everything.
This is a side door to the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, the same church I used for yesterday’s City Daily Photo theme day post. I have no idea what the door leads to, as I’ve never had occasion to be inside the church, let alone the side door. I should go inside the main door someday.
I’m a dork. I took this picture in an alley behind some businesses, but failed to go around front to see which business this door belongs to. And I don’t have another photo to post for today, so I’m kinda stuck. Like I said, I’m a dork. It may be the back door for Apizza. Then again, it may not. Whichever business it is, it’s on 3rd Ave.
This is the front of the Church of the Nazarene on Washington St. It’s a cute little church… the epitome of a little white church, in my opinion. I’ve posted a side view photo of it before.
As someone named Gecko pointed out in a comment on the other photo, the church was once the Baptist church before it moved to another location.
In other news, StaytonEvents.com has posted an article from the fire department about the recent suspicious house fires here in town. If you live in the area, please read it and keep an eye out. My own home was one of the ones hit (read more about that night here). Thanks.
